Freedom of Religion? Shamanism.

John OMallen (@omallen) 10 years, 5 months ago

Talking to Manimal I had an epiphany. (Look! A productive thread where we can talk about a cool and interesting subject matter with out the mention of Ugg boots!)

Is practicing legit Shamanism in the United States illegal and prosecutable?

Native American can use Peyote catus, but can LEGIT PRACTICING Shamans use the paraphernalia and drugs know in their practices such as peyote, cannabis, morning glory, woodrose, and shrooms?

Shamans don’t care about the laws of the US, they’re rebels. YEAH!

You don’t need drugs to be a shaman though. In fact, the really good shamans use methods instead of drugs. Because that’s much more controllable.

Also, ugg boots IV lyfe

True, but can they be prosecuted if they prefer to use illegal substances?

P.s. I LOLed.

It’s not cool and interesting unless it involves UGG boots.

I’m not sure, but I think if you can certify that you’re a native american shaman, you can grow and imbibe peyote. I’m not sure how you certify your shamanism, and I’m not inclined to pursue this further. Manimal was right on the money when he said that good shaman’s don’t need drugs for their purposes.
